Even in 2019, the Polish economy left Iran, Thailand, Sweden and Belgium in the conquered field. Looks like we’re going to go up and chase Taiwan and Switzerland. The latest forecasts of the International Monetary Fund indicate that over the next five years, we cannot count on catching up with these countries. And it turns out that in a pandemic, someone outnumbered us.
- Twenty-second place in the ranking of the world’s economies is temporarily the peak of our capabilities
- From this position last year, Iran has abandoned us, and thanks to oil prices, this country affected by US sanctions will enter the top 20 list
- Taiwan and Switzerland are ahead, and will remain that way for the next five years, although we will catch some distance – IMF forecasts
- When it comes to the wealth level of the population, we are much further away than we are near the top twenty, because we are well beyond the top forty

In 2019, our GDP was $597 billion. And we were on the verge of breaking into the 21st place in the world economic rankings. Before us, it was Taiwan with $612 billion. But the epidemic has changed a lot.
Last year our GDP fell to 596 country generators.Meanwhile, Taiwan has hit its wings, propelling the economy to $668 billion. Likewise, we have two positions Switzerland – Increased GDP from 732 to 752 billion dollars The advantage of these two countries is not expected to recede on us this year, according to the forecasts of the International Monetary Fund. Enterprise analysts believe it will increase. Only from 2022 we have to speed up And the resumption of the quest and efforts to enter the top twenty in the world.
In the meantime, someone bypassed us and threw us to the 23rd place. According to the IMF, he will not give up this position, but will reach the top twenty positions in the world. Thanks to high oil prices, Iran is supposed to be. The same thing that is currently under US sanctions.
Even Iranian Oil and Gas Minister Javad Oji announced over the weekend that he was planning Offering oil and gas condensate to “every investor” who offers other goods in return Or it will invest capital in Iran’s oil sector affected by US sanctions, the Palestinian News Agency reported on Monday.
Sweden is chasing after us
It was not only Iran that expelled us. Those countries that are directly behind us: Sweden, Belgium and even Argentina we were last year. customs. This is due to change in 2021 and we will increase the distance again – this is estimated by IMF analysts.
It’s supposed to be the same until 2026, even this year However, we will not change the 23rd place in the world economic rankingAlthough we are very close to what we still have ahead: Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Switzerland – according to the fund’s projections.
At the top of the order, nothing should be changed, i.e. the order. The United States takes the first place and will take it in 2026. China is in second place, and Japan is in third place, and will continue to do so for at least five years, according to projections of the International Monetary Fund. They go up quickly India, which according to IMF forecasts, will overtake the UK economy by 2023 He will be ranked fifth in the world. In Europe, Germany will remain the largestIts advantage in terms of GDP over the second Great Britain is expected to remain until 2026.
In 2026, China will be one step away from the United States. The value of US GDP should only be 16 percent. higher than the Chinese. In 2021, according to IMF forecasts, the difference is 36%.
42nd place in wealth list
Although we are close to the top 20 in the ranking of global economies, it is Things are different when it comes to the wealth of our wallets. This comparison can be estimated on the basis of the GDP per capita index, taking into account the purchasing power of money projected by the International Monetary Fund. And here we are much less, not even close to the first twenty, but beyond the first forty.
especially Last year, we ranked 43rd From 34.2 thousand. Gap. GDP per capita. For the sake of clarity, this dollar value is not the real value of GDP, but is corrected for difference with US prices (PPP), so as to show how much people can afford for the money earned. Also, in all countries this indicator does not mean the real level of wealth of ordinary people, if, for example, a lot of GDP was taken over by an oligarchy or the state.
Right in front of us is GDP per capita at purchasing power parity It’s Puerto Rico, i.e. the unincorporated territory of the United States of America, which from time to time is proposed to become the 51st state of the United States of America. For political reasons (the Democrats would win in Puerto Rico), this plan did not come to fruition. GDP per capita at purchasing power parity was there last year. 35.7 tys. Countries.
In 2021, we have to outperform Puerto Ricans And the per capita GDP will increase by 153 USD, so that the difference will increase in 2026 to 6.5 thousand. Gap. Annually – IMF estimates. Thanks to this, we can say that we are richer than Americans in at least one state, even informal, and on the other hand, we can move to one place, to the 42nd place in the world in 2021.
Portugal is behind usThe GDP per capita in terms of purchasing power parity was 33.7M last year. Gap. This year, it will reach 36.5 thousand, according to the expectations of the International Monetary Fund. Gap. In five years, the difference between us and the Portuguese will grow to 2.6 thousand. Gap. The results of the fund’s forecasts. In 2019, Portugal was ahead of us by 1.7 thousand. Gap.
Interestingly, IMF forecasts say so In five years we will be (!) in 43rd place in the world. Yes, we will approach the standard of living for Spaniards and the difference in GDP per capita between us and them will drop from about 5,000. Gap. annually to just over 3000 dol. , but it will jump on us in the Guyana manifesto.
This South American country has found significant sources of oil in its offshore economic zone, which in five years will allow it to reach the top 30 countries with the highest GDP per capita at purchasing power parity. So far it has been one of the world’s poorest and most corrupt countries, and as long as the authorities do not waste wealth, there is hope for increasing wealth, which is a rarity in history.
Luxembourgers chased by the Irish
the richest are they The population of Luxembourg with approximately 118 thousand. Gap. Per capita GDP per year at purchasing power parity in 2020. This amount is set to rise this year to 126 thousand. Gap. By 2026, according to forecasts of the International Monetary Fund, it will increase to 149,000. The gap.
near Macau residents should follow LuxembourgWhich is still last year. They were a poorer half of the leaders, but two years ago… they were leaders. Yes in it, although the epidemic only hit temporarily. In third place in five years The Irish will be there With nearly 140 thousand gap. Annual GDP per capita from purchasing power parity. They owe their position to the headquarters of American tech giants in their country.
Level 100 thousand gap. Ireland’s GDP per capita is expected to exceed this year. For comparison, we will have 37.3 thousand. Gap.
Behind the Poles in the ranking are the Hungarians, Slovaks, Portuguese and Latvians. In the years 2021-2026, according to the forecasts of the International Monetary Fund, our advantage is the growth in per capita GDP according to purchasing power parity compared to all four of the above countries.
The Czechs are higher than us – in the thirty-sixth place. Interestingly, IMF forecasts say so The Czechs will overtake the Japanese and Italians in 2024 In per capita GDP according to the PPP, the Israelis a year ago, and since last year ahead of the Spaniards.
The poorest country in the world is Burundi. Next is South Sudan and Somalia. In Burundi, GDP per capita is expected to be just $779 this year. This is less than a third of Afghanistan’s income. African countries occupy the last 13 places in the ranking, with Yemen occupying the first place in the ranking of non-African countries.
